You know the drill – a special occasion comes up and you need something adorable for your kids to wear, but you know that chances are they will only wear it once – so, what is a Mom to do? When my girls were younger, I found myself in that same situation – you want your kids to look great, but spending $100+ on that perfect little dress that will be worn once is not my idea of fun.
Once my older daughter got to high school, she discovered Rent the Runway – a service that rents special occasion dresses for prom, homecoming, cocktail parties, and the like. It was life changing for my fashionista who could not bear to wear the same dress to more than one event, but did not have the budget or the closet space to purchase all these dresses.
Now there is a service like Rent the Runway for the littles!! It is called Rainey’s Closet and they rent special occasion outfits for girls and boys size infant to 16. Where were they when I was trying to outfit my rapidly growing girls for all their special events as little ones?
How Rainey’s Closet works. You search the Rainey’s Closet site for the dress, outfit or accessory that you need. Pick the dates you need the outfit for and place them in your cart. Once the outfit arrives, have your child try it on, wear it to the special event and take those photos!! After the event, put the outfit back in the envelope complete with the postage paid label (you don’t even wash it – oh, how I love this part), and send it back! How easy is that?
In the end, instead of spending $100 or more on a dress your daughter will only wear once, you can rent the dress for a fraction of the cost for 4 or 8 days. Not only do they carry dresses, but they also have the most beautiful hair accessories, shrugs and little extras you need to complete the perfect outfit.
Whether you need a designer quality, over the top adorable dress for an upcoming wedding or your daughter does pageants or modeling, Rainey’s Closet is worth checking out. Get 25% off your first order when you sign up for the Rainey’s Closet newsletter!
